CAN SPAM Act requires telling your email recipients where you're located:
Your message must include your valid physical postal address. This can be your current street address, a post office box you’ve registered with the U.S. Postal Service, or a private mailbox you’ve registered with a commercial mail receiving agency established under Postal Service regulations.
The FDC defines the CAN SPAM Act as including "all commercial messages, which the law defines as “any electronic mail message the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service,” including email that promotes content on commercial websites".
Some emails are sent without explicit commercial content. For example:
- A user signs up and receives a verification email
- After confirming account, they receive a welcome email
- If they request a password reset, they get an email with password reset link
- When they complete a purchase, they get an email confirmation their purchase
- When tracking information is available they get tracking
- After completing a purchase, they're asked to leave feedback or a review for the product they purchased
Does any of this constitute commercial advertisement or promotion? Would a business be required to include a business address at the end every email sent from the list above?
